Fortnite: Obi-Wan Skin Release Date, Price, Pickaxe, and More Details

Hello there!

by Diego Perez


Obi-Wan Kenobi is coming to Fortnite to commemorate his upcoming Disney Plus series, and this fan-favorite Star Wars character will land in the Item Shop very soon. The skin is included in a bundle like most other collaboration outfits are, coming with a pickaxe, back bling, glider, and other various cosmetics. Sadly, there isn’t a Lightsaber pickaxe, but that’s because the Lightsaber Mythic weapons were unvaulted for the recent Star Wars event. Still, the Obi-Wan Kenobi bundle contains a lot of cool stuff, and here’s how you can get your hands on it in Fortnite.

How to Get Obi-Wan Kenobi in Fortnite

To get the Obi-Wan skin in Fortnite, you have to purchase the Obi-Wan Kenobi bundle in the Item Shop when it releases on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 8 PM PT. The price hasn’t been revealed, but the bundle will likely cost 2400 V-Bucks with the skin itself being priced at 1600 V-Bucks based on previous crossovers. Here’s everything you’ll get with the bundle:

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi Skin
  • Desert Essentials Back Bling
  • Obi-Wan’s Blade Pickaxe
  • Jedi Interceptor Glider
  • Obi-Wan’s Message Emote
  • Kenobi, Surrounded Loading Screen

If you’re a competitive player, then you can compete for a chance to earn the skin for free ahead of its Item Shop release by participating in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Cup on May 22. If you place among the top players in your region, the bundle will be added to your locker for free.
